Terming it 'futile' and 'inhuman'😱, Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal stopped⛔ Social Welfare Minister Sandeep Kumar's plan to embark on an anti-begging😯 drive today. Sandeep Kumar had been planning🤔 for weeks to clean Delhi's streets of beggars and had formed special teams to round up all the beggars in order to produce them before a Magistrate⚖ for further actions. But he was thwarted😏 by Kejriwal, who posted on social media💻, "Most inhuman n futile exercise that social welfare dept cud think of. Am directing them to stop it immediately". A ministry official👔 claimed that the blueprint prepared by the minister was flawed and would have created an unnecessary controversy💥.
Social activist Harsh Mander also criticised😠 the plan and likened it to the disastrous strategy adopted before the Commonwealth Games in Delhi in 2010😟.
